We also had permatubes, but back then there were functional BMX tracks that were a (rather long) ride away, and we built jumps ourselves. So not quite as dismal as you're painting, Odin...

 

But yes, the youff have it good.

Myles, we definitely don't need to improve our skills at the restaurant however, the bike park, jumps gaps that's where we need to be...

 

FOCUS MYLES FOCUS!

I had no idea it even existed. Thanks for this. Will definitely go check it out.

I had a skills session here with Chris Nixon about 4 months ago. He's a great guy; very friendly and down-to-earth. He gets right to the point about what you should be drilling into your muscle memory so that you build up the right base for more technical riding. As I understand it, he's overseen the construction of the pump track there too and it's the perfect place to build up skills incrementally. Highly recommended.

He's built everything there... Him and his team.

I haven't been here in about a year - looks totally different!  Think it's time for a return trip!

Oh yes indeed. We built our own jumps from planks and bricks. Pretty simple and useless actually as they would topple every time 2 went over.

My 2 year old son enjoys the pump track at Helderberg Farm on his balance bike. Is there anything similar here? Its nice to change the scenery every now and again.
